About the bridge
Brisbane City Council has successfully completed works to replace the Shelgate Street pedestrian bridge in Chermside West to improve safety and accessibility for pedestrians and cyclists.
The bridge is located in Chermside West and connects Shelgate Street and Kinnerton Street. The bridge provides an important link between Shelgate Street and Kinnerton Street across Downfall Creek for park users accessing Melaleuca Green Park.
About the project
The bridge was replaced with a new steel bridge and concrete deck and will support safe crossing for all users.
Works on the bridge began in June 2020 and involved:
- replacing the existing timber bridge with a new 3.6 metre-wide steel bridge with a concrete deck
- piling foundations for the new bridge
- upgrading the footpath approaches at either end of the bridge
- embankment protection works
- landscaping and revegetation of disturbed areas.
Council would like to thank the local community for their patience and understanding while these important works were completed.
The bridge replacement improves the safety, accessibility and lifespan of the crossing.
